Craig F. Ashton — Attorney

Fair Oaks, CA—Prominently featured in The Inner Circle, Craig F. Ashton acknowledged as a Top Pinnacle Professional for his contributions to the field of Law.

A graduate of UC Berkeley, Mr. Ashton continued his studies at Pepperdine University School of Law where he earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence. A leader in his field, he is considered a masterful practitioner of Personal Injury and has won hundreds of millions of dollars in injury settlements, awards, judgements, and jury verdicts since 1993.

A member of the California Bar Association, Mr. Ashton noted that he has dedicated his career to obtaining justice for those injured by another’s negligence or recklessness and believes that personal interaction with clients is key to achieving success in a case because it allows him to build relationships with them while also understanding their needs and concerns.

Known as “The Ironman of Injury Settlement,” he is an avid athlete who competes in Ironman triathlons both nationally and internationally. According to the attorney, they are arguably one of the most grueling tests in sports, featuring a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run all completed within 17 hours. He asserts that it takes dedication, determination, and focus, which are all qualities that have helped Mr. Ashton become such an effective advocate for his clients as well as an award- winning athlete. And to note, he has even swum from Alcatraz to San Francisco four times with the sharks, of course, extending professional courtesy.

Recognized by peers and clients as a caring, thorough, and aggressive attorney, clients can expect personalized attention from beginning to end, as he works closely with the client every step of the way so that he can understand the individual needs, as well as to build trust between himself and his clientele. This, he notes, ultimately leads to greater satisfaction with the outcome in any given case. Clients can also count on him having the endurance necessary to take the case all the way to trial if necessary because, as evidenced by his five awards, he IS an Ironman.

In addition to his success in the legal field, Mr. Ashton is proud to be a descendant of Revolutionary royalty. His fifth-generation grandfathers are Richard Henry Lee and John Augustine Washington, while George Washington is Mr. Ashton’s direct great uncle (5th). Acknowledging the tremendous support, she and his brother give, Mr. Ashton would like to dedicate this honor to his wife of 12 years, Tanya, and his brother Scott Randall Ashton.
